The Annual Day of Thanksgiving
for children baptised in the parish over the last year
will take place in Belcarra on Sunday April 10th.
On Sunday April 26th we had a day of celebration for all those who were recently baptised.
This began with Mass in St Anne’s Church in Belcarra
and was followed by refreshments and a gathering in the Community Rooms in Belcarra.
THE AFTERNOON OF THANKSGIVING and WELCOME
for all children baptised in the parish during the last year will take place on Sunday next April 26th.
It begins with Mass and blessing of babies at 3pm in St. Anne’s church and that will be followed by refreshments in Belcarra Community Centre.
It is organised by the Parish Pastoral Council.
Families who have been invited are asked to reply by Thursday next so that the necessary arrangements can made.
At its recent meeting the Council decided to:-
Celebrate the Annual Day of Thanksgiving for those baptised in the parish during last year – on Sunday April 26th in Belcarra Church.
Have an Appreciation Day for the Sacrament of Marriage on the weekend of September 26th/27th at both Masses.
Look at ways of developing more youth involvement in the life of the parish. Our Diocesan Youth Officer Siobhan Bradley attended the meeting and offered some very positive suggestions.
The parish has been invited to submit an article for the next issue of New Dawn (The Diocesan Magazine) about our parish website.
